About Our Summer Camps

The summer arts residential camps at NIU are a unique blend of intensity and fun. Campers with a passion for the visual arts, theatre, or jazz get the time to focus on their art – and to learn from the very best teachers. Junior and senior high school students love these camps and many return year after year.

Campers enjoy six days of arts and recreational activities, sleep in newly renovated university residence halls, and eat in university dining facilities. Classes are taught on-campus by NIU faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, and alumni. Each camp ends with a gala show that is open to the public.

Last year’s camps closed before the discount deadline date of June 1. Don’t wait until the last minute to register!
